the obama administration strong sanctions have been put into place, and to date they have worked affecting the economy of iran. he said they've not stopped in deterring the nuclear program that that country is pursuing. he spent much of the speech setting the stage, talking about iranian aggression saying this is what we've seen in iran where they've turned on their own people without a nuclear weapon. what can the world expect if iran is able to obtain a nuclear weapon? an interesting note. he said in his remarks the middle east, europe and america would not be safe. >> yes. this presupposes that iran is not a rational actor or is sometimes described as death call. it's not clear. we've gone through this. i don't know if you were in the late 1990s and early 2000s we went through the same rhetoric with north korea. it it was unthinkable. the world would go through no effort and they couldn't trust them with a bomb, south korea could be destroyed although the touch the button. president clinton said north korea will never use that bomb, because if they do, it will be the end of north korea.
, rick. >> rick: peter, thanks. >> arthel: new fallout over the obama administration's changing explanations for the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. almost two weeks ago, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice claimed the assault was a spontaneous outburst of violence. u.s. officials now admit i was a coordinated terrorist tack. today a leading lawmaker calling on ambassador rice to resign. molly henneberg, who wants the ambassador to step down? >> reporter: it is congressman peter king, the republican chaiuse homeland security committee, the first lawmaker to call for ambassador rice's resignation. he wants to know why she went on sunday talk shows, five days after the attack and said it was a spontaneous event even though king says there was circumstantial evidence that it was a terror attack. >> entire administration has handled this wrong from the start misinformed the american people, misinformed the world she was our representative to the world. supposedly explaining what happened. everything she said was wrong. the administration is now trying to cover it by sayi
over the obama administration's official version of what happened. top lawmakers are demanding answers. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he woul
in here now? all right. directly ahead, john stossel investigating whether or not the obama administration has watered down welfare work requirements. and then is it legal on a texas woman arrested, taken to jail for letting her children play outside. you think we're kidding? we're not. those reports are coming up ely. >> bill: stossel matters segment, when president obama took office, 32 million americans were on food stamps. now the number is 47 million. there are charges that the obama administration wants to get as many people as possible on the dole. >> when i think o reengage people in politics is we're doing serious policy work around what i will label working poor, they were struggling. and to the extent that we are doing research figuring out what kinds of government action will successfully make their lives better, we are putting together a potential majority of coalition that will vote. >> bill: we asked john stossel to investigate whether or not welfare work requirements are being watered down by the obama administration, perhaps for political reasons. here is stossel, the auth
that the white house holding meetings about al-qaida threat. the obama administration meeting to talk about the terror group and whether the united states should launch strikes there. the group is dangerous since getting crote of large areas in somalia. the sessions began before the u.s. consulate atact in benghazi that left four americans amtrak collides with a tractor trailer . the train with 169 people on board was heading from oakland to bakersville, california when the truck blew through the passing again. passengers tossed around like rag dolls. >> it was ripped out and fell on top of him. i had to lift up the seat and i found him in his car seat. >> smoke. it was just, the train came apart. >> gretchen: train service suspended in the area. we are one day from the presidential debate. mitt romney in denver. it will make the way for the future of the counsel rye. >> these debates are an opportunity for each much us to describe the path way forward for americans. >> i am concerned about having a serious discussion about what to do to keep it growing. >> gretchen: the high-stakes debate
that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time t
not letting up the pressure now on the obama administration, as lawmakers have now sent a letter to james clapper demanding answers on benghazi attack. of considers, yesterday we were talking about james clapper. friday, his office coming out and basically staking responsibility for the intelligence failures. well, now, senator joe lieberman and others coming forward with this letter. >> alisyn: and also, who is going to take responsible for the tactffactactfufact-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
did mention the world hot spots and the problems bedeviling the obama administration. here is just a sampling. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> reporter: and mr. romney has argued on the campaign trail for weeks now that with him as president the u.s. will once again return to shaping world events and spreading democracy and the american view rather than passively watching as violence erupts all over the world. jamie? jamie: carl, thanks so much, live here in new york city. jon: a decades-old murder case, jamie back in the spotlight. michael skakel is serving 20 years to life for the murder of a 14-year-old martha moxley back in 1975 in connecticut. he was convicted years after the kill
about this morning. >> he tells sean hannity he thinks the obama administration tried to to have up the attack. >> they had this narrative al qaeda is no longer a big threat. they never say fundamental terrorism. the president was moving on to asia he was going to declare this a vit great victory and an act of terror convened in their narrative. this isn't stupidity. i said this a while back i got heavily attacked for it. i spent a lot of time investigating coverups and conspiracies. this is a coverup a deliberate brat attempt to cover up the truth from a administration that wanted to make history. it involved the slaughter of four americans. maybe if they had been straight forward about this they could have quelled some of these demonstrations that took place afterwards that also did tremendous amount of damage. >> fox and friends will have a lot more on this at 8:00 a.m. today. make sure you tune into that. >>> moving on to the economy a key issue in this presidential election as you know. that's what sean hannity is talking about with the dnc vice-chairman. he is pressing him on
on the attack in benghazi. fox news learned the obama administration knew within 24-hours that it was a terrorist attack. peter dos sigh h peter doocy has more for us. >> within one day intel forces told fox news the administration knew it was an attack. they sent susan rice out to say the attack was at the hands of an unruly mob. when asked about the 24-hour time line the secretary of defense dodged. >> a terrorist attack ignited as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it was clear terrorist planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved what specific groups were involved the investigation is ongoing. we will get some of the feedback from what happened at that location. >> according to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff there were broad signals an attack may have been in the works. >> there was a threat of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western correction in libya were seeking to coalesce. but there wasn't anything specific. >> despite the fact that four
that the obama administration knew within 24 hours that the murder of the u.s. ambassador and three others in libya was a terrorist attack. and they labeled it that way internally. why didn't they tell the american people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carn
of the obama administration, what the president of the company said. i think they've been specific on the types of things that they would do to be able to increase jobs, provide more access to the american dream, and tough decisions have to be made. i cut spending in virginia about $6 billion eliminating deficits. republican governors have done it all over the country. sure there was some complaining and hardship at the beginning but we're running surpluses and the job rates in red states are better than blue states and that's what mitt romney will do. >> he's been specific about his goals. he hasn't been specific about how to reach those goals. what about what paul ryan acknowledged on fox -- >> andrea, hold on. >> go ahead. >> i have to stop you on that. the president of the united states, has not got a budget passed in three and a half years. that's -- you know, governors balance budgets every year on time. this president has not got a budget passed either house, even though he's had a majority. the president has had no plan to reduce the debt. he's increased the deficit a trillion dollars a
of the nation's problems saying the bush and obama administrations was wrongly put, faith was wrongly put on geithner himself. why that take from you at this point? >> well, i think that the whole crisis was bungled badly, and that's really what the book that i wrote is about. that's why it's titled "how washington failed america." washington failed america, first, by allowing this crisis to develop. we had very wrong-headed policies over the previous decade or so that regulatory policies that allowed this situation to develop. and then once the crisis hit, the crisis was terribly mishandled by the treasury. treasury shouldn't be in charge of crisis management in the financial system because it is a highly political agency, and they're not skilled at it. one reason we kept the crisis under control in the 1980s is that the federal reserve, an independent agency, and the fdic, an independent agency, apolitical, handled the crisis, and we didn't have a lot of involvement from treasury. cheryl: you know, one of the things that we heard from hank paulson, basically -- because he, himself, of c

public perceives the comments is all that matters when you go to the polls. the obama administration was successful in selling this as a spontanous reaction and the media was successful in saying that romney jumped the gun those are the impressions that are left in the american's people's mind it is hard it go back and change perceptions that are in the american people's. >> brian: the president shows the president lost five poigns on the foreign policy aruval rating. but president obama has to feel good about another national poll that shows him with a lead if it was head-to-head with and we were not doing the electoral system. he's up on ryan where we are a dead heat. he is up over president obama. >> it is within the margin of error. it is essence a close race. battle ground polls that came out i believe it was newscast left was touth a big wide margin that obama is widening on romney. they are skewed and we talk body it. >> brian: our science is not skewed. >> gretchen: president obama up five points. >> they are over polling. >> gretchen: over all president obama is up in the fo

that will say in the first two years of the obama administration, there was democratic control of both houses of congress, and the president had a hard time getting his legislative agenda passed. caller: it's because the filibuster in the senate, i mean, when you need 60 votes and the democrats only had 59, so he had a hard time getting even healthcare through. host: all right, paul, we're going to move to andy on our line from independents, calling from florida. caller: sorry, i'm calling from south carolina. host: ok, andy is calling from south carolina where. in south carolina, andy? caller: columbia. host: ok. are you in favor of divided government or one party? caller: well, i'm not so sure i'm in favor of either one, unless -- except if divided government is going to give us what it's given us now and nothing gets done, nothing gets passed. we got a credit rating downgraded because one party says my way or the highway. that's not good governance. it's not -- there's no such thing as my way or the highway. we all have to compromise, you know, in a marriage, the husband doesn't get everyt
want to know if there's any practical consequence, it would be the point that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. but it does not seem that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something like a presidential debate. other than health care, i can't see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attack affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it's remarkable. the republicans who during the nineties for a while were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action don't do it anymore. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the has

attal islamic militants. is it your sense that the obama administration was owe live just to the known danger or they simply ignored it? >> you know, i don't know. i think we'll find out but it is clear that they missed the growing threats and they purposefully downplayed these threats. i think that's the trouble. gregg: sources have now confirmed to fox news that intel officials knew within 24 hours that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: wh
